Local company helps McGregor train for the big fight


Millions are expected to tune in to a huge fight this weekend between McGregor and Mayweather.

But what you may not know is that one of the items boxer Conor McGregor uses to train comes from here in Central Pennsylvania.

HydroWorx is a company that makes rehab and training pools and tubs with a treadmill inside.

By offering buoyancy the water takes some of the pressure off the body and still allows for an intense workout.

The $25 million company is based in Middletown and has helped countless athletes over the years.

"You're helping elite athletes become their best on a huge stage," explained Matt Foss, CEO of HydroWorx. "This fight is a big deal for the nation, but it's not the first time that we've been a part of impacting an athlete or a person's life."

The elderly, disabled and others also use HydroWorx products for physical therapy and training.
